Growing Up On Skywalker Ranch

Posted By Chris on May 27, 2011

Eric Walker, the actor who portrayed Mace Towani in The Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor is planning a fantastic new book, but he needs your help. For the next 70 days, fans can pledge various amounts on Kickstarter.com, a website specifically designed for people trying to fund projects. For a description direct from Eric himself, read below:

About this project

Hi, I?m Eric Walker. I look forward to sharing what it was like to be a teenager in the role of a life time; from audition to screen test, to being directed by George Lucas, in this personal memoir, "Growing Up on Skywalker Ranch".

?Growing Up on Skywalker Ranch? will chronicle my adventures in the Star Wars universe playing the leading role of Mace Towani in George Lucas? ?Star Wars? spin off movie "The Ewok Adventure" and "Ewoks: The Battle for Endor".

Most people think GL did not direct until Episode 1 in the late 90's, but I have proof that he did and I?m excited to finally have the opportunity to share this amazing experience. Yes, GL directed the Re-shoots of "The Ewok Adventure", because credited Director John Korty had a prior commitment and could not be there. It was truly an honor to have worked with George Lucas in person.

In ?Growing Up on Skywalker Ranch? I will also share what went on behind the scenes, including a tour of the Skywalker Ranch and Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) at the time, and some of my personal conversations with GL himself. This project is part of Star Wars and our History and deserves to be told. Help me fund my book and you will get some great collectible rewards from the Star Wars universe that no one has!

May The Force Be With Us!

Eric Walker


For helping fund this project, there are some great rewards in store depending on the amount you pledge:

A digital copy of the book prior to release
An autographed Lucasfilm authorized photograph of Mace Towani
An autographed CD collectible of photographs taken on the movie set
A never before seen DVD video of footage from "The Making of The Ewok Adventure" shot by Eric and Warwick Davis
An autographed copy of the book prior to release
An invitation to the Book Release Party
A credit with YOUR NAME in the book under Special Thanks

Wow, those are some great rewards! What are you waiting for? If this project isn't completely funded in the allotted time, it won't happen, so click here to head on over and make your pledge now!
